Stories of our Chickens: Brigid finds her Home 2
About that time, it started getting really cold at night. My husband (who claims he hates chickens) started bringing her inside in the middle of the afternoon, before she had a chance to run away.
Like a stray cat who works his way from the porch to the laundry room to your sofa, Brigid worked her way into our house and our hearts. We started bringing her in at night and put her in a cat carrier to sleep. Her pitiful "bok-bok" request to be let out greeted us every morning when we came downstairs. She hated going outside with the roosters, or the hens, or when it was raining, or when it was cold. Eventually she went out only in our laps or in the morning while the others were still in the shed. Lacking other feathered friends, she formed an alliance with our cat.
My husband, son, and I were her flock, as far as she was concerned. The green recliner was her perch; a cat carrier in the office was her henhouse. And she was family to us as much as we were flock to her.
